Child Almost Never Presents with Fever/Symptoms When Ill

We have an apparently very healthy five-year-old. But I am starting to wonder. Even as a baby, they have very rarely had fevers. They have a sibling who is textbook. You know: Gets sick, gets a fever, and takes a long road to recovery. But our five-year-old doesn't follow this process.
For example:
At a little over 13 months I took them into the doctor because they were twisting their head a lot but did not have a fever. Double-impacted ear infection.
This February they had tonsillitis. Their glands were so large, I was nervous about them obstructing their airways. No fever. No hoarseness, etc. Ate and behaved as a normal, healthy five-year-old. So needless to say, the NHS doctors were not interested in clogging up the surgery with them.
Today, they woke up with what appears to be the rash all over their face from the B19 parvovirus. Again, no fever, sore throat, etc. Ate and behaved as a normal, healthy five-year-old.

Ideas? The NHS in our area is not interested in the least.
